Uneven Swelling After Bullhorn Lip Lift

Bulhorn lip lift - I had mine 3 days ago. Is uneven swelling (nostrils) common? I know it's too early to look in the mirror, but my nose and the area from my nose to my lip is very swollen, as expected. But one nostril appears a little bigger than the other one. When should I dare look in the mirror again! Thanks.

Any surgery need TIME to completely heal. Prior to any surgery you need to be psychlogically ready for the healing process. There is no majic. 6-12 weeks before the swelling and final results
